The Night Will Always Win

Album: Build a Rocket Boys! (2011)
  • I throw this to the wind
    But what if I was right?
    Well, did you trust your noble dreams
    And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
    The night will always win
    The night has darkness on it's side
    I throw this to the wind

    I miss your stupid face
    I miss your bad advice
    I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
    Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
    But never by the moon
    But not the state I'm in
    The night will always win

    I throw this to the wind
    But what if I was right?
    Well, did you trust your noble dreams
    And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
    The night will always win
    The night has darkness on it's side
    I throw this to the wind

    I miss your stupid face
    I miss your bad advice
    I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
    Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
    But never by the moon
    But never the state I'm in
    The night will always win Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK POTTER, MARK ELLIS POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
